There is strength in numbers. For this reason, antenna systems are increasingly being converted from SISO architectures (single input / single output) to MIMO (multiple input / multiple output).

Regardless of whether it is military communication, public security, smart meters or smartphones, more antenna elements increase the channel capacity, reduce the transmission power and increase the resistance to multipath fading.

The smaller the device, the more difficult MIMO becomes from a design point of view, e.g. B. by adequate insulation between the individual antenna elements.

This is key to making sure they don’t interfere with each other, which would reduce channel capacity and system performance. For example, the Taoglas Pantheon MA750 is only 85.7 mm tall and has a diameter of 145.6 mm. However, the five antennas have an isolation of 20 dB +.

Three other important features to look for are high radiation efficiency, low envelope correlation, and a built-in ground plane that gives the flexibility to mount the antenna on metal or plastic without sacrificing performance.

For applications with long cable runs such as 10 meters, low-loss cables are critical to ensure that a MIMO antenna can establish and maintain a reliable connection. If the antenna is likely to get wet or hit, it is best to use models with IP67 housings made from extremely durable materials such as Wonderloy PC-540 PC / ABS alloy.

Enova Robotics manufactures safety robots. “At Enova Robotics, we know that security and surveillance reliability is essential. For this reason we decided to work with Taoglas and selected the Pantheon MA750 for our PGuard Robot, ”said Ahmed Dimassi, Production and Delivery Manager at Enova. “This unique antenna offers powerful MIMO antenna technology. We knew we could rely on their team to reduce the risk and time involved in integrating with our technology. “
